We hope that for our August meeting the MCCC will host a State of the Hobby Dealer Panel. The panel will consist of one or more area dealers who will discuss the numismatic industry from their perspective. Members that attended the World’s Fair of Money are invited to share their stories, purchases, and awards with the club at the meeting.
For the next MCCC meeting, members are invited to bring in their numismatic collectibles to share with the members as extended exhibits. Whether your collection is common or esoteric, bring in something that you like and introduce it to your fellow club members. Each member participating will get no more than 10 minutes to talk about their items.
For the next meeting, MCCC President Don Stepita will deliver the second part of his “Grading as I See It” talk, this time discussing how to grade copper coins. The lecture is based on Don’s work collecting early American copper coins.
The March program is a member roundtable, to give members a chance to share what, why and how they collect. This will be a chance for members to discuss their interests (U.S., foreign, errors, varieties, paper, tokens, etc.), what they focus on (themes, geographic areas, eras); why and how they collect; do they buy, sell, or trade; grading; is it a hobby, investment or both; and anything else members which to raise.
MCCC President Don Stepita will deliver the first part of his two part-talk “Grading As I See It,” a presentation on an algorithm for grading mint state Morgan dollars that can be adapted to other denominations. The first of the 2019 National Historic Park quarters, the Lowell (MA) National Historical Park Quarter, and the 2018 P and D American Innovation $1 Introductory Coins will be available for sale at the meeting.
Following the induction of officers, new President Don Stepita will preside over a business meeting of the club. The agenda will be available at the meeting. Don has asked that member exhibits be held for future meetings.
